Twisted Ridges Earwarmer (Toddler Size)
This free crochet earwarmer pattern is designed to fit great and keep your hairstyle from getting destroyed.
Snow fell here this week in Texas and I needed something to keep my ears warm. Most earwarmers I find fit too loosely on my head, are too wide, or not wide enough. I love to make hats, but they always make my hair crazy. This is the result of some simple stitches I put together one night to make something to keep my ears warm, while still allowing my hair to maintain its integrity. I hope you enjoy the toddler version of this earmwarmer! The child and teen/adult sizes are available on Ravelry!
